Are paired adjectives bad style?
I have the habit of using paired adjectives in my writing:
- The noise from the engine lulled her with its slow and monotonous rythim ...
- ... the lights on the ceiling filled the room in a soft and warm hue ...
- ... his skin was smooth and thin, like paper ...
The examples may be not 100% accurate since I don't usually write in english, but let's pretend.
Now, sometimes even single adjectives are frowned upon (What's with all the hate on adjectives and adverbs?) - so by logic paired adjectives shouldn't be any better. I remember reading reviews criticizing this very aspect in published novels, but I never understood if there are solid reasons to back up this opinion.
So, are paired adjectives bad style - and if so, why?
Addendum: I'm specifically asking about novels and fiction.
